This year, with prompting from an Etsy Bloggers carnival theme, I decided not only to make personal New Year's resolutions, but also resolutions for my stores and blog.
For my blog I will make a new post at least once a week. If I keep up with the blog groups that I belong to on Etsy and on Artfire that shouldn't be a problem.
For my shop I am going to try to add some new things. So far I am off to a good start. Here is my latest. I love making my bead crochet bangle bracelets, but I also love to crochet with yarn. I crocheted a couple of cuff bracelets, but I wasn't altogether happy with the way they turned out. Then I was browsing around online and noticed the felted items.I saw brooches and cell phone pouches and beads. I thought, "Why not bracelets?" So I gave them a try. After a few tries I was thrilled with the results. These bracelets are soft and very lightweight. They also work up very quickly and are something I can work on while I'm sitting in my car waiting for my kids at one of their activities. (The crochet part anyway; the felting part takes water).
I have made 2 sets They are available in my Etsy shop and also in my Artfire shop.
